BOISE -- Remington Arms Co. is in court again over one of one its most-popular hunting rifles, this time with an Idaho lawsuit filed by a man who says he was shot through the foot by a defective weapon.

Oregon resident Loren Korpi said in U.S. District Court in Boise that he was hunting a year ago in Idaho when a Remington 700 bolt action rifle fired into his foot -- without the trigger being pulled.

Korpi's case joins dozens of similar claims filed against Remington over the past three decades. They contend its Model 700 bolt-action rifle, with more than 5 million sold, has a flawed trigger mechanism that the company has known about for years.

The company couldn't be reached Friday, but has said its Model 700 is safe.
